RR vs SRH Predictions and Betting : Team News
SRH have been able to get their eleven but they haven’t been up to the mark in terms of execution of their plans.
The opening pair of David Warner and Jonny Bairstow has been one of the most explosive ones in the league with a lot of expectation from the duo. Manish Pandey slotting at 3 hasn’t looked convincing for the entire league except for that half century against RR which they lost eventually.
While Kane Williamson has played a key role in lifting the middle order, the likes of Priyam Garg, Vijay Shankar and Abdul Samad haven’t really contributed as one unit.
Rashid Khan doing a great job with the ball while the pace trio of Sandeep Sharma, T Natarajan and Khaleel Ahmed have the potential to scare the opposition but they have been singled out and targeted that has caused so many problems for the team with Bhuvaneshwar Kumar not in the picture.
Rajasthan Royals was finally able to register win in last match against CSK after two consecutive losses. The squad looks overall and will be preferring to go with the same side this match.
The change in batting lineup worked for RR. With Ben Stokes and Robin Uthappa opening and Sanju Samson at No. 3, this could help them add good score in early overs.
The captain Steve Smith coming in at 4 finally broke the jinx with a well made 50 against RCB followed by 26 runs not out against CSK in last game should have instilled confidence in him.
Jos Buttler at 5 turned out to be a blessing for RR. At 6, big hitter Tewatia can tonk any pacer at will. Riyan Parag though needs to improve alot as he has failed in almost all the matches of IPL 2020.
Rajasthan's biggest worry has been their bowling. Apart from Jofra Archer, there is little that the others have done to keep the run rate down or have supported Archer with wickets.
Even though the spin duo of Shreyas Gopal and Rahul Tewatia haven’t been on the expensive side, they have failed to get crucial breakthroughs.
Kartik Tyagi is an exciting talent who will be backed for the remainder of the season. Ankit Rajpoot was back in side as 3rd pace bowler for last match replacing Jaydev Unadkat. He did not bowl much but he may be required for this match.
